There is either equality in society or there is not. If a vagina joke is unacceptable, so must be a dick joke. To say a dick joke (my personal favorite being the one I wrote a few months ago: My dick is so big, the super-delegates have committed to it) has to be less offensive because of the male dominance in our societyso the girls get to have special dispensation for a while, just to be fairis counter-productive. You seem to be asking for society to, somehow, allow women to be more equal to make up for the inequalities they have suffered. That cannot be how it works, otherwise the scale never stops swinging.

You both need to buy and read Mike Closes That Reminds Me.
That book reminded me that we have to laugh at ourselves first before we can laugh at anyone else. And then its all goodand funny.
Fred: If Mai-Lings group calls themselves Vagicians, then everyone will be calling them Vagicians. Then there will be groups claiming that the name demeans all womenkind of like pole dancers (even though they have been quite popular on Americas Got Talent). Where do you think the outrage should end?
We wanna call ourselves Meryl Streep!
